I was doing my weekly check of the Since 4 Weeks
changes page when I ran across this.
r29259: Embedded album art support in MP3/ID3v2 tags.
- Support is limited to non-desync jpeg in id3v2 tags. Other formats (hopefully) follow in the future.
- Embedded album art takes precedence over files in album art files.
- No additional buffers are used, the jpeg is read directly from the audio file.

I've tested it with a few themes I regularly use and it works very well for me. If you're a fan of album art this will give you the chance to save quite a bit of space on your disc. In checking my internal and external memory for folder.jpg files I discovered enough that I can remove to add several more tunes. I use fairly small picture files but enough small files can add up to quite a bit.
My thanks once again to everyone whose contributions continue to improve this all ready fantastic project.
